It's my plex server, even when data is on it, i doubt it gets accessed more than twice a week. Just burning power, i guess it's only 5 or 6 watts. But no, i'm not sure lol. Should i just let em spin?Are you sure you want the drive spinning down/up that often? That is the most stressful time for a spinning drive like that. Might be better to let it stay spinning even if it's completely idle/empty.
Thanks, it was the ext4 journaling. I'm not sure why that would write anything to an empty disk, not to mention keeping it spinning at all times.either file indexing
